Overview of Santiam Tray / Tunnel Commercial Dehydrator - UL EPH Approved

Manufacturer #: Santiam

This 40-foot-long industrial dehydrator from C.D.S. (product Santiam-Dehydrator) is a powerhouse of dehydrating capacity yet is compact enough to ship anywhere inside a standard 40-foot shipping container. Quick installation will immediately provide you with almost 8000 square feet of prime drying acreage, using the state-of-the-art tray-and-dolly system. Manufactured by the Commercial Dehydrator Systems firm, a leader in large-scale industrial drying since the 1910s, this Santiam dehydrator has rugged steel walls (stainless or carbon steel, your choice) and a roof that’s full insulated in order to ensure precise humidity and temperature control. Your workers will monitor tunnel temperatures via L.E.D. displays (max operating temp in the tunnel is 104°C/220°F). Feel free to fine-tune your customized production protocols - the Santiam will do counter-flow, parallel-flow, batch and batch-to-dry dehydration protocols. The system’s powerful burner (choose propane, butane, or natural gas) generates approximately a million B.T.U.s and the tunnel’s 20-Hp fan keeps that heated air circulating uniformly and consistently. Standard dolly trays are stainless steel (34.5” x 34.5”), providing a total dehydrating area of 7870 sq. ft.; plastic trays are an option, although they provide less total drying space (6893 sq. ft.).
